Description

To arrest the global warning a general consensus has been arrived among the countries and it is now planned to restrict the temperature rise to 2oC . A 0.76oc temperature rise has already started many more natural calamities everywhere in the globe. If the temperature rise is not controlled, our future generation is going to witness many more Climate Change connected tragedies like water scarcity, migration of people due to seawater inundation in the costal areas, reduction in food grain production, recession in the economic growth of the countries etc.

Additional Information

As we all are aware, due to the commencement of the industrial Revolution during 1750’s there has been a huge use of fossil fuel. As a result of this there is an abnormal rise of about 0.76oC on the Earth’s atmosphere than the temperature in the pre industrial years. If there is no check on the fossil fuel burning the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), predicts that there will be a temperature rise of about 1.4 to 5.8oC during 2100. The IPCC is taking action to control the temperature rise. Now the industrial G8 and the developing G5 countries have decided to control the emission by 80% during 2050. Almost all the countries are now seriously thinking on controlling the fossil fuel use so as to arrest global warming. The present 0.76oC temperature rise has already intensified the natural disasters - floods, droughts, forest fires, hurricanes, cyclones, tornadoes, glacier retreat, sea level rise, heat waves, fauna and flora extinction, generation of many more new types of viruses and diseases, biodiversity reduction, Skin cancer etc. To arrest the global warning a general consensus has been arrived among the countries and it is now planned to restrict the temperature rise to 2oC .
